Today is Smithsonian Folkways day. I haven’t had one for a while, and I was feeling guilty. Both of today’s songs are from a great album called Classic Sounds of New Orleans. You don’t have to buy the whole album; you can just download a song if you’ve a mind to. I find rooting around in the Smithsonian Folkways site always nets me a surprise. Give it a try!
